Torch Relay: Keep it Moving


The Torch made its way to Phoenix on Friday, November 1 for one of its 23 legs of Torch Relay. Torch Relay for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is a unique multi-day event where walks and runs are hosted in a string of 23 cities across the United States. The Torch travels from event to event, marking the cross-country Relay’s progress.

Participants are welcomed to walk and run in their local race, displaying their support of the patients in their community.

Phoenix’s Relay was once again a success – 20 teams participated, raising nearly $25,000! The fall-festival themed event featured carnival games, a kids’ craft table, a face painter, balloon artist, caricaturist, the Arizona Cardinals cheerleaders and mascot, Big Red, the Torch Relay walk, and a post-walk dinner enjoyed by all.

Corporate sponsors included Marriott Bonvoy, Marriott Vacations Worldwide, Visa, CDW, Enterprise, Alamo, and National.

Thank you to everyone who helped carry The Torch for our kids at Phoenix Children’s Hospital and all other

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
